Great Falls Church Recognizes Five First Responders

November 01, 2003 | Sharon Ashton

The Great Falls (Mont.) Church used its church service on Sept.13 to recognize and appreciate those police officers, firefighters and emergency personnel who put their lives on the line for the community every day.

The special worship service, organized by members Joyce Lund and Joy Miles, honored and recognized Jamie Jackson, battalion chief, and Charlie Butler, captain, of the Great Falls Fire Department; John Sowell, sargeant, and Cory Reeves, senior police officer, of the Great Falls Police Department; and Ken Downs, NREMT/P, of the Great Falls Emergency Services.

The church presented to each a “Certificate of Gratitude” along with a book of Bible promises.

The spouses were recognized and presented with carnations and scrolls printed with the Aronic Blessing (Numbers 6:22-26). George Boundey’s sermon, “No Greater Love," focused on service and encouraged others to find ways to serve their community.
